They were able to seat our party of seven rather quickly and the food was excellent! Really large portions and we all shared a variety of appetizers in addition to our main meal. It was a bit cold and we asked to have the air turned down as we were right under a vent.

Went to brunch for our anniversary. Great food and service. If going to brunch, I'd ask for a table away from the bar! With $1 mimosas, people were almost standing at our table.

The meal was good. The waiter was friendly enough and helpful, but could have asked were we ready to order when he brought our drinks.
The food had a good taste and was a good temperature when it arrived at our table.

Overall it was a fair to good experience....all of our meals had the breakfast potatoes except one and the potatoes were cold as was my entree. They were replaced but not in a timely fashion...the service was hit(friendly) and miss(timeliness). The place is clean and we were seated promptly. The main problem was that they were just to busy or understaffed. The food tasted good and the selection was good so it could have been better if everything had been on point. With all of the options in Chattanooga for dining I would not be quick to go back since we live 45 miles away.

We went for brunch on a whim, and proceeded to go back for the next three Sundays. If we ever have the time to go to brunch, we will definitely go here. Fantastic food, great service, and wonderfully creative and delicious cocktails.

Went for Sunday brunch with family at 10 a.m. The food was delicious and the service was good, but not great. $1 mimosas and $3.50 Bloody Marys are a good deal. We've been visiting Foodworks for years and will continue to have it on our dining rotation.

The only complaint I have was they sat us at a very small table. Too small for two people. We made do though. The noise level was very high. I checked the highest level on the survey question. It was titled “Energetic,” I would call it loud.
Over all, it was a nice experience and I will be back again.

Arrived a little early. Lots of people running around, but no one manning the host stand, so it took a little bit before we were greeted at the door. We were seated immediately. Waited a while before ever greeted by a waiter, so much so that we were looking around and considering leaving. Finally a waitress stopped to ask and then went to find a waiter. Service was decent and a little slow. Food was great! Seemed staff was just overwhelmed with all of the large parties around us.

Met friends for brunch as I do most Sundays. FoodWorks never disappoints. I had the Crabcake Benedict which is always delicious. A few people at our table had the Smoked Salmon Omelette which they said was excellent. Two people had the Breakfast Burrito which is huge! We shared an order of the Blackberry French Toast with bacon and everyone loved it! Of course, how can you go wrong with $2 mimosas! Will definitely be back again, probably next week!

This used to be our favorite place to brunch but our service was slow, the waiter never came back to see if we would like another drink and the portions have been cut in half and increased in price. The only positive thing I can say is that my bloody mary was delicious. It would have been nice if I had been asked if I wanted another one since it was gone before our food arrived. We only saw our waiter when we ordered upon being seated and when he dropped off the ticket for us to pay and he wasn't very busy.

Consistently good food and great service. The staff has been there a long time, so there is little turnover (always a good sign of a well-run organization). It can be a little loud due to layout and lots of hard surfaces, but not obnoxiously so. Fun place to be with a creative vibe.

I love Food Works! My favorite place for my favorite meal, BRUNCH!! I recently brought two friends who had never been there and they loved it too. I suggest making reservations because it takes under 2 minutes to make a reservation. Which is an easy solution to waiting for a table. The service is excellent, the staff is so pleasant. I enjoy the atmosphere and exposed brick.
